I am currently in full-time employment. Do I need to resign in order to apply for a Chevening Award?
No, this is not a Chevening requirement and it is up to you to discuss it with your employer. You are personally responsible for ensuring that you will be able to accept the award offer when it’s made and that your employer will release you in time for departure to the UK. The British embassy/high commission or the Chevening Secretariat cannot intervene in this.
